Basketball Tournament

Olivia has had SO much fun playing basketball with other 3rd grade girls from our church.  She really only signed up because that's what other girls from her soccer team were doing during the off-season, but she has been pleasantly surprised at how much fun it has been.  It also helps that she scored 8 of her team's 12 *winning* points during the final game of the season.  Unfortunately, Will was taking McIver to a birthday party so he missed it.  

The good news is that the tournament is a 'single elimination' deal so every team gets to play at least one game.  More good news is that the Trinity Cathedral team's first tournament game was played against their most recent opponent - the team they beat 12-4.  So, they were confident in their ability to win.

Pep talk from one of the coaches before the game.

Olivia on defense - "arms up!"

Practicing during half-time - Trinity was ahead at the half for only the second time this season.

Team picture after the WIN!

The final score - and they get to play again next Saturday.
